The white sand stretch 3 km from Tuban Area has made it as a fascination for tourist to visit this place. Seminyak Beach is favored by the great wave that is ideally for surfing adventures hence many surfers visit this beach to conquer the waves and enjoy the surf adventures.

“Nice for a day”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed May 2, 2015 NEW

Came to this beach two times over two days, and teh second day was too much. The hawkers are quite annoying, and persistent, they will come back every hour to offer you the same item you already turned down. One lady started touching my feet while I was asleep suntanning on a chair, that bothered me, although she wanted to sell me a foot massage, I didn't appreciate her touching me unexpected and unwanted.
What is great here though are the lounge chairs with an umbrella for 50K/ all day, and there is surfing and many good beach restaurants with bean bag chairs and cheap ice cold Bintang. Stick around for a beautiful sunset and cocktail. All you need is one day here, any more than that and the garbage, hawkers and smells may bother you.

“Scenic but crowded”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 1, 2015 NEW

This definitely had lesser people than the kuta beach but still was quite crowded.Its a long beach and a must visit if you are in seminyak.We spent the evening having dinner at one of restaurants along the beach-even-though the food wasn't great,the ambiance and sitting on those comfy informal seating where you can lie down and gaze at the sky and the stretching horizons was a memorable experience.

“Ew”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed April 30, 2015 NEW

Garbage and broken glass would not go in past my knees here. Have to really be on the look out for broken glass in sand.

“Interesting! Not a chill beach.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 30, 2015 NEW

As a natural Beach you will have to travel far to find something as pristine as this. however depending on the time of the year it can be really busy. most annoying are the "Traders". it is a continious pattern of trying to sell you something. From Kites to Watches.

“as beaches go...unmemorable”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed April 28, 2015 NEW

I don't think you go to Bali for the beaches...and if you do my friend, there is quite a bit of the world for you to see yet.

The beach in Seminyak was a dull grey colour...quite a few pieces of rubbish on the sand...a lot of bad smells and frankly you'd pay me (a heck of a lot) to go for a swim there.

Visitors please do care. Bali is a wonderful place but it has, as in any developing countries, a lot of work to be done in terms of getting their sewage sorted. At this point a lot of it ends up...yes you've got it! in the spot where you want to go swim! So go back to your resort and jump in the pool!
